Hello, y'all! Congrats to our winner yesterday, Fedora :)
Today, I have a special treat for you. It's another recipe from my sous chef days. It's a wonderful dish for a romantic spring dinner for two!
Chicken Virginia Chardonnay
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp Smithfield ham, minced
1 shallot, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup Chardonnay wine (I always use Prince Michel Chardonnay bottled right here in N. VA!)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
Salt and white pepper to taste
In saute pan over high heat, brown chicken breast cutlets in butter. Turn heat to medium, add ham, shallot, and garlic. Saute until shallots are translucent. Deglaze pan with wine. Add cream, mustard, salt and pepper. Simmer until cream thickens to coat wooden spoon. Stir in minced parsley.
Serve over rice with steamed or grilled veggies. Garnish with sprigs of parsley. Enjoy!
